Wild Canines
Wild Canines

​​​​​CoyeteMancos is home to Coyotes, Red Foxes, and Gray Foxes. All have been seen in the park, mostly at dawn and dusk. Mancos’s wild canines have never been involved in a conflict with people or pets. However, both coyotes and foxes are territorial, and may not like it when a domestic dog is near.

Therefore, try to remember the following guidelines:

  • Keep ALL pets on a leash while walking them. This isn’t just advice, it’s a law.

  • If a coyote approaches you or your pet, you should throw rocks, sticks, or anything else to frighten it away.

  • Use a loud, authoritative voice to frighten the animal.

  • Never feed a coyote, no matter how docile it appears.
